Samsung Galaxy S4 to have an Eight Core Processor?

Nathan Simon Nathan Simon Profile: Nathan Simon

One person is trying to convince the world of that, in the Smartphone business, rumors create hype, and hype is great for Samsung right now. The soon to be released Samsung Galaxy S4 will apparently have eight cores, how do we  know this? This alleged person says he has a S4 Prototype and ran a benchmark on it. Here is an insert from Gizmodo.

The Antutu benchmark test reports that the S4 is powered by Samsung’s own Exynos 5410 chipset, with its eight cores running at 1.8GHz clock speed. It’s coupled with a PowerVR SGX 544 graphics processor, with 2GB of RAM onboard. The S4 in this allegedly current state also feature a 4.99″ display running at 1920×1080 resolution, with Android 4.2 the phone’s launch OS. Source Article

Will eight Cores really matter in today’s market. Yes and No, power users or geeks, whatever you want to call us, always want the best, why settle for four measly cores when you can have eight? No in the fact that todays applications usually don’t take advantage of eight cores right now, maybe later, but not now. I would rather have four really strong cores, and one slower one for emails, texts, and updates. Not unlike the Nvidia Processors.
